I take watches in for repair by mail only. There are some watches that I cannot acquire parts for, or that are too worn out to repair, so please call me, Stephen Thomas, at 503- 239-1859 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about repair of your watch. For my address and a form to fill out for sending your watch, click on the Sending Your Watch link at the top of the page. When e-mailing, please include your phone number and turn off your spam blocker so my reply will get through.
I do not sell parts, or do appraisals. Please do not ask.
If you wind your watch and it ticks or it's an auto-wind watch (wound by your wrist movements), please go to the wind up watch estimate page.
If it has been over a year since you had a battery put in your watch, and you haven't gotten it wet, it probably has a dead battery, replacement of which is usually $20.00 plus shipping. In most cases if you suspect it is just a dead battery it is usually better to try a local shop for battery replacement before you mail it to me.
Battery powered watches have a lot less power in them than wind up watches, and
they won't continue to run (and wear themselves out) with dirt in them as a mechanical
watch will; they'll just stop. When your battery powered watch is new, you may get
as many as seven years from a battery. As the watch ages and the oil gets gummy, you'll
get fewer and fewer years from each battery until a new battery won't make it run.
